Last Monday, my fellow Italy blogger told me about a wonderful opportunity. Anyone could adopt an olive tree sitting at home (anywhere in the world) and could buy olive oil from that very adopted olive tree! How cool is that!? I was very excited after knowing this and wanted to do it soon.

The opportunity was being given by Villa Rosa dei Venti that is just outside of Cortona, Tuscany. I wasn’t sure whether I would buy the harvest of that tree as it would add a lot of duties and costs after reaching India. Instead I took my chance and thought well il just adopt the tree and anyone else could use my harvest there in Italy itself! The kind people of the Villa agreed. So I mailed the owners for the details. 

The owner Barbara, was very sweet and accommodating. She knew I only wanted to adopt the tree and call it mine 🙂

So she did it for me. Love the Italian kindness. Now I am the proud owner of my very own Olive Tree back in a place that I can safely call home 😉 My name is tagged to that tree and it is now officially “adopted”. Additionally, I am also being presented an adoption certificate with a picture of MY tree.
